In this go-go-go, never-say-stop world we live in, preparing that nightly feast sometimes has to wait until the sun goes down. Somebody please nominate the inventor of the humble grill light with some worthy prize for allowing backyard chefs to still fire up the grill and cook safely thanks to the illumination those lights provide. Now, there’s no excuse not to plan a barbecue feast any night of the week. Here are several grill lights to help shine a light on your work.
